|mishamish||06:30 am - It's not my fault!!!|
Seriously! The late update is NOT my fault this time! Crash is trying some new techniques that should A) make the comic look better, and B) make it faster and easier to make. Unfortunately, this requires quite a bit of digital rendering. Which he sets to run while he sleeps. And last night it hung up in mid-sleep. So, he wasn't able to start the BRUSH work on it until about 5am today.
Where does this leave us for FRIDAY'S update? I have NO idea, but I'll try to keep you posted.

|mishamish||10:05 am - Ooops!|
Sorry, folks! Today's (Monday's) missing coming can be put only on the doorstep of yours truly. I thought we were a bit further ahead on storyboards than we were and then disappeared for the weekend. Have no fear, however! Crash now has storyboards through NEXT Monday (See! I know how far ahead, now!) and I've got scripts ready for about week past that and am working on more. New comic will be up tomorrow (barring some kind of unfortuante occurrence, knock on wood) and this shouldn't happen again. All hate-mail should be sent to Misha@cheshire-grin.net.

|mishamish||11:27 pm - GAH! Deadlines!|
Okay, THIS is why I don't like writing C-G ahead! When I'm writing it as we go, I'm RIGHT there, I'm IN the moment, I know where the comic is, where it's recently been, and where it needs to go next. I'm in the MIDDLE of my world, my heart-beat is it's heart-beat, and many other vague and slightly disturbing metaphors and such.
But now, I've been writing ahead for a while. Got WAY ahead at one point, and then kept writing a little bit in the interim. And now... I'm out of scripts. I wrote to the end of the "locked in the shop" bit, and now it's closing and... and... and.. . I have NO idea where I'm going next! GAH! And, when the strip posts (in 20 minutes), there will be nothing left for Crash to work on Friday. NOTHING. ZIP. NADA. EMPTY SPACE. Total and complete BILL (take THAT Discworld community!). So... WHAT NEXT?!
Pardon me while I go panic for a while.

Remember, Cats and Kittens, that C-G is now updating Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. YUPPERS! Now back up to FOUR days a week. We're working on the five-day bit. As it stands, I'm going to see about talking Crash into making the whole Wednesday-Filler thing a regular feature.

|mishamish||10:44 am - IMPORTANT!!!|
Okay, guys, do NOT try to log in the Cheshire Grin Forums for a while. It seems we've been hacked and we're getting redirects on every potention log-in to go to a freewebs page. It seems a harmless enough compromise, but we don't know if it's submitting any username/password info when it's doing it, so... just don't go there for a while. It's annoying, but I've let security at IPowerWeb know about it and we're working on fixing it. Hopefully, this won't be the end of the C-G forums.
To Whom It May Concern: Whoever you are, I have to guess that you know something about the site or keep up with it, else I suspect the security of anonymity would have protected us again. And if you DO keep up with the comic, or read this community, I'm glad. There's a few things I want you to know. This will be in my rant on-site soon, but I also wanted to say it now, here. You're a git. You're not a god, you're not some force of destruction. You're a git. You are MOST definitely not a poet. You are a git. You seem to like the idea that you are some kind of elemental force, moving across the landscape, laying waste wherever you like. You are not. You are an annoying git who's merely interfering with a few people who wish to talk with one another. You'd have an equal effect by walking into a room at a party and going "LaLaLa!" really loud. Only this way you don't have to show your face to anyone. Which I suppose is the point.
You are git. Nothing more, nothing less. Get over yourself, and leave us the fuck alone, aight?

|mishamish||02:57 pm - Just for clarification...|
It occurred to me that I could have posted the Cheshire Grin Fund Raiser Announcement post on a better day. If anyone was curious, No, that was NOT a "Down the Rabbit Hole" post. It was actually serious. Just wanted to let you know.
